A Yummy Body Butter: Brown Earth Mango Butter with Shea & Cocoa Butter

Ok, so I haven't eaten any of this, but I kind of wish it was edible as it smells delicious with it's gorgeous tropical Mango butter scent which is perfect for that summer feel. I typically do not like slathering on body lotions/creams (that doesn't stop me from buying them though!), but this body butter is one I do like using as it is a buttery, velvety creamy quality rather then a hard, waxy feel so it is easy to apply and doesn't require too much rubbing to absorb into the skin.

The skin on my body is dry, so the Cocoa and Shea butter base is very nourishing and moisturising on my skin and the scent lasts well throughout the day so you don't really need to wear a fragrance with this on.

What I like a lot about Brown Earth is that considering the high quality of their butters, they are reasonably priced (this one is £10.95 for 120ml from their website). They are also Vegetarian Society approved.

  1. Thanks for the review, hadn't heard of this brand before. I'm not normally a fan of body butters because a lot of the ones I've tried have been greasy. This one sounds like it absorbs quite quickly though and the scent sounds lovely!

  2. Hi Nat
    It is lovely, however they do leave a slight satin sheen finish so doesn't look/feel matt against the skin.

  3. That sounds really good, I'd not heard of this brand before, I'll make a note of it, thanks for the review x
